My son & I recently took the CFSC/CRFSC certification at Niagara Training Academy with instructor Al Albano. We found the course to be very informative & enjoyable. Al takes an active role with each individual in  the class. Whether you are a novice or experienced hunter / gun enthusiast, you will learn a great deal taking this course. Al also brings in very experienced trainers like Sherrie Sadauskas to help him make the course not only educational but fun. Both Sherrie & Al provided us with a deep respect for safe gun handling.  I would recommend this course to my friends & family and to anyone who wants to learn about gun safety and handling from experienced instructors.

Thanks Al "great job"

I wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for a very educational and enjoyable training session.

Al – You did a remarkable job in covering all the subject matter and turned many Canadian hopeful gun owners into more responsible handlers of firearms, including me.  I was thoroughly impressed with how you handled the course!

Tracy – I want to thank you for helping me out in scheduling my exam quickly in the process and allowing me to return home to Cleveland at a semi-reasonable hour.

Thanks again for everything!
